In both series, we have this school club which was started by a delusional girl who is into supernatural and we also have this cynical guy with a tendency to do tsukkomi (though the guy from Chuunibyou does it with more impact - literally). Both series also have a hint of romance and other weird kids who accompany the two mentioned earlier. The key difference would be the fact that the supernatural stuff in Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuutsu is actually real, while in Chuunibyou is all part of the delusions. Nonetheless if you liked one, the other might be worth checking out. Last but not least, both series are really funny.

Both of these anime revolve around a hyperactive high school girl with an imagination just as alive. In their attempts to bring out the supernatural they drag an unwilling male student and soon-to-be-friends  into their club and shenanigans.  Both females long for excitement in their drab boring existences and both clubs center around finding this excitement. Fun ensues as both girls cause annoyance and stress on the other club members. Also, Yuki and Kumin are similar in that they originally joined the club to read and nap respectively. Overall, both are comedies with fun characters, slight romance, and "action".

Chuunibyou surrounds the lives of several teenagers who suffer from "8th grade syndrome". A condition that causes them to take on super powered personas, such as the Dark Flame Master. Unlike the characters of Chuunibyou, the cast of Hataraku Maou-Sama are super powered beings, cast from their realm and reduced to mere mortals. Both of these shows deal with very similar forms of comedy, and both also have a dramatic side to them.

While one features actual demons and the other involves those who act as if they are, both have extremely similar humour and are both great series. 

Samurai Flamenco

Samurai Flamenco

But much to his dismay, the job isn’t as easy as it seems and during his first night as Samurai Flamenco, the man is knocked out and saved by police officer Hidenori Goto. Swearing to keep his secret, Hidenori quickly becomes Hazama’s friend and partner on the job, but soon the pair find themselves in a sticky situation.

The plots of these shows are completely different. Chuuibyou features teenagers whereas Samurai has adult characters. However, both shows are delusional people trying to function in modern society. They often do embarassing things and get into trouble because of these delusions. Also, both shows feature a straight man character that tries to help out the delusional character. Both shows are light hearted and include a lot of comedy.

Chuuibyou has better animation and has some fantasy action scenes that take place in the character's head. Samurai is more dialogue heavy and doesn't have the action scenes, but if you like humorous anime about character with delusions then you should try either of these anime.

Sianeka Sianeka says...

If you are enjoying the superhero antics of Masayoshi Hazama, you should check out Chuunibyou Demo Koi ga Shitai!  And if you are enjoying Takanashi's insistence of resistance to the Dark Forces, you should check out Hazama's superhero Samurai Flamenco.  Both anime feature characters who are out to save/improve the world using extra-ordinary methods.  In Chuunibyou, Rikka Takanashi is trying to save the world from the dark forces which only a special privileged few know exist.

Both Taka and Hazama are zealous (over-zealous even!) in their beliefs, and do not care what the rest of the world thinks of their method of choice in defeating evil. Taka uses custom-rigged everyday items endowed with supernatural forces to fight, while Hazama dresses up in his superhero costume to improve society and punish and admonish rule-breakers.

Both have a more-or-less "straight" man buddy to accompany them and ground them to reality, when their tendency is to take flight into their own private universes.  Taka's friend is a school buddy and neighbor Yuuta Togashi and Hazama has a cop friend, Hidenoro Goto, who knows his secret identity.

If you enjoy buddy anime, and want to see age old fight of good versus evil played out with a new batch of heroes, check out either of these similarly themed shows.

Very similar shows with a different premise. Both have a fairly grounded MC (Though MC is Netoge is more open about his flaws) trying to bring a shockingly cute yet fundamentally flawed girl back down to reality. If you like one, you'll definitely like the other

Like Rika in Chuunibyou, there i s a girl in this series that have trouble telling apart game and reality, when her friends that meet in irl on a computer game comes and saves her

Well, honestly, there are two reasons: they're both from Kyoto Animation, and they're full of MOE!!  But seriously, both series are the type that are just filled with warm feelings that make you laugh (sometimes to the point of crying) and they also make you want to hug somebody or something and cuddle. I'm a guy, by the way....
